Prime Minister Bejamin Netanyahu appoints two female Likud MKs to new ministerial roles in his government.

Likud MK Galit Distel Atbaryan — who was until now a minister in the Prime Minister’s Office — will become the minister of public diplomacy, and Likud MK May Golan will be appointed a minister in the Prime Minister’s Office.

The appointments are expected to bring the total number of current ministers to 32, and the total number of female ministers to 6.
